The Lighting Controls Association now offers EE203: Lighting Controls and Energy Codes: 2021 IECC as a new course in its popular Education Express program.
Check out these excellent publications covering lighting controls by the Illuminating Engineering Society.
BetterBricks, a commercial-building initiative of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA), has developed a video course on finding Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLC) solutions for lighting projects.
In this episode of Get a Grip on Lighting’s Conversation series about lighting controls, hosts C. Webster Marsh and Ron Kuszmar talk to the Lighting Controls Association’s Craig DiLouie about networked controls, sensors, controls education and training, and writing, among other topics.
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recently introduced four new standards: standardizing iterations of lighting controls intent, navigating near-field photometry, the importance of UV lighting, and promoting a balanced outdoor environment.
Luminaire-level lighting controls (LLLC), also called embedded controls, are lighting control systems in which sensors and controllers are installed within luminaires to enable autonomous, individual luminaire control. By making each luminaire a control point, control is highly flexible, responsive, and therefore generally more energy-saving. Serving as a preview for an upcoming Education Express course, this article describes LLLC technology, system types, advantages and disadvantages, studies characterizing energy savings and cost, and what’s familiar and distinctive in regards to design and installation.
The DesignLights Consortium (DLC) and the Lighting Controls Association recently announced an agreement to collaborate in the offering of online courses that advance students’ knowledge of networked lighting control (NLC) technology and applications.
Brienne Musselman, Education Director for the Illuminating Engineering Society, looks at seven trends that will affect professional lighting education.
The Lighting Controls Association now offers EE107B: Lighting Controls and Commercial Lighting Rebates as a new course in its popular Education Express program.
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), recently announced a special five-part free webinar series called “Taming Complexity.” Presented by PNNL experts and partners, this series will explore ongoing efforts to better understand and reduce the ever-growing complexity of advanced lighting systems.
